I play the clarinet in the NH Symphonic Band and Clarinet Ensemble. I also play in the Kodak Band.
I am a Rochester native and attended #8 School and Franklin High. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester in 1964 and my D.D.S. from SUNY Buffalo in 1968. I was a Captain in the U.S. Army from 1969-1970, serving one year in Vietnam. I practiced dentistry in Rochester and Greece for 38 years and retired in 2007.
I took clarinet lessons at Hochstein Music School for about seven years, and played in my grade school and high school bands.
I have been married to my wife, Elaine, for 44 years and have two adult daughters. Deborah lives in Virginia Beach, Va. where she is a psychologist in their school system. Lisa lives in Seattle, Washington, works as a medical researcher, and is completing a graduate degree in social work.
My father played clarinet, as does my younger daughter. We enjoyed many years playing duets and trios together at family gatherings.
